Storyline

A Dream Comes True - Superstar Gam Sa-yeong Height: 169cm Weight: 70kg A left-hander with small hands The underdog pitcher who threw his best - Gam Sa-yeong. The year is 1982, the first year of professional baseball in Korea. Gam Sa-yeong gets an offer to join the Sammi Superstars just because the team does not have any left-hander pitchers. Unlike its name, however, Sammi does not have any superstars at all. Far from being an ace, Gam spends most of his time as a relief pitcher, closing out hopeless, losing games. Nobody expects him to win. Any time that Gam takes the mound, the other team cheers in the knowledge that a win is all-but assured. And one day, the most unlikely, miraculous chance appears for Gam. He gets to start against the best team in the KBL, the OB Bears. OB's ace, Park Cheol-sun, is in the midst of a 20-game winning streak, and is most anxious to keep that streak alive. No pitcher on the Superstars wants to go up against Park and his formidable winning streak. No ... Written by CJ Entertainment

Well-balanced example of Korean movie
7 December 2005 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

Too many Korean movies are currently emulating the stereotyped genre production of Holly Wood and HK cinema. However, this title shines among them because of its uniqueness and well-pacedness.

The plot is based on a real story and the hero is a real figure who is currently commanding a minor college squad. The structure and interactions among characters are nothing new, already experienced by many sport movies elsewhere. However, this movie preserves the austerity of exposing emotional fluctuation, and succeeds in drawing a shared opinion toward a commoner who struggles against and negotiates with highly competitive professional sport capitalism.

Nobody is winner or loser in this film and nothing is accomplished or discarded. Just everything is observed and experienced as the state it should and may be; and that is how this movie can have its own value and why this movie is praised by many local audiences and critics for its unheralded achievements.
